Gold prices fell significantly today, while reaching the lowest level since mid-2010, as a stronger dollar and a rise in price of shares weakened investment appeal of the precious metal. Rising dollar helped the news that rRespublikantsy won the first important victory in Kentucky and West Virginia in the midterm elections in the US Congress.
